What about a milk frother? Could go with coffee theme gift if you want to spend more.

Something like this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/prod.....5c090

Your description of your DH sounds fairly similar to mine.

Telescope? Radar (Although the good ones are closer to $500)? Drone?

What about buying a pet for the house? It's a big one because you have to agree to have it at home plus the accessories and maintenance will add up....

Does he like geography and traveling? If he does then a pushpin map is very nice.

We already have something that's a smaller scale and he's not into it at all. Thanks though!

So with tools and these sorts, he's actually more into buying it himself since we both know I have no clue of anything and it would be a waste of money lol

We already have a pet of some sort which he is responsible for and there's nothing I can contribute to that dept.
I actually hinted the telescope idea and he wasn't so keen in that. We already lost one drone so ain't gonna try that again or maybe a little later on in life ๐Ÿ˜‰ and a radar I can imagine him saying he rather buy himself ๐Ÿ˜

Also, not into geography and traveling ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Sorry for nixing all ur ideas. I really do appreciate your help!

The best thing to do in a wine store is find a worker and say these are bottles my husband currently has What do you suggest based on that.

Again my dad is an avid scotch drinker and he also likes dry red wine He says the beauty is in noting the differences.

Oh we actually just got a great red bottle:

The winery is borgo bella. It was a chianti.

There's another winery similar borgo reale .... Also good dry reds


Great! He is actually expecting alcohol since I always end up getting him for these occasions! I really appreciate your suggestions and advice!

Get him a smoker! I got one for my husband, and heโ€™s in love with it.
I also got him this once https://www.macys.com/shop/pro.....99010
Itโ€™s so funny and looks so cool and a total conversation starter


I think it might break, maybe when the kids are married lol.
Isn't a smoker like 700$?
Do you have one u recommend?

Because you said he'd appreciate gag gift, check out mancrates.com
It's a box of a nice gift. U pick your theme of gift, and it comes in a wooden box, with a crowbar and no instructions for the man Smile
I never got any, not my husband's type, so I can't vouch 100% but I heard from someone who got. Sounds really cute. I did check them out once, and a lot of boxes have nonkosher things in them though

My husband is the type to want it identified on the item that it is kosher. Really cool though!
